Subject: Scholarly Analysis of the History of Priestly Celibacy
An unflattering description of the intimate role of priestly "celibacy" in the origins and rise of Roman Catholicism from 150AD up to the age of the author. Earlier editions (c.1867) finish with only prescient effects of the wars for Italian independence. Later versions, especially this 1957 publication are more complete.
This erudite analysis of Christian history, by the acclaimed historian Henry Charles Lea, speaks with sophisticated diction at college senior or graduate school levels. But its comprehensive nature makes it well worth the effort. Does not contain the many Latin, Greek, French, and occasional English footnotes of the 1867 edition.
